Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Question about sharing

I've gone through the Holograms 240 tutorials, but unfortunately only have one Hololens to work with at the moment :) I do have a question though.

I know that I can have a group of people sharing a hologram and seeing it placed at the same point in 3D Space. But how about a scenario where I've got a number of students lined up along a straight table. Each has a Hololens, and each has a real-world model of something, say an automotive water pump, on the table below them. They also each have a hologram of that same water pump just to the left of their respective real-world models. As the instructor says something like "Step 1", each student sees their respective hologram disassemble for step 1, whatever that might be. In other words, they're sharing the same hologram, but the hologram is seen by each student in the same place relative to their current position. Is this something that is possible?

  • Thanks Mark. Nice to know it can be done...now I'll just have to figure out all of the coding. I'll be trying to merge the sharing code from 240 with my current project, which as I've been reading, can be a bit of a challenge!
